I had to abandon the Richter project because a bolt sheared off in the canti stud and I don't have the tools and time to try to remove it before my holiday.

I've built up the Diamond Back and could take that on holiday, though I would really need a longer seat post for it, but I'm hoping to finish getting the Zaskar built up tonight (with random parts!) so I can take that up to Scotland.

If you need anything else let me know I might be able to help, I thought you needed a 26.8 post?

I either needed a 26.8mm post to build up the Unknown grey thing, or a 31.8mm front mech to build up the Zaskar, and in the end I ordered a newer M750 front mech from CRC, just so I can hopefully use the Zaskar on holiday. Picked it up this morning, so I'll be fitting it as soon as I get home.

At some point I'll need a longer 26.6mm post for the Diamond Back, but not sure you can get ones of a similar period that are long enough, which would be a shame as the SR Laprade seat post is what it would have originally had and really suits it.

Thanks, I'm hopeful I have everything for a rather mixed up Zaskar build, but I'll let you know if I get stuck!

Also Welton ride tonight, same time/place as normal I assume.
I personally would like a smooth, flat ride as hills and bumps hurt a bit at the moment.

Good ride tonight, I enjoyed the extra challenge of not being able to see much!

I knew I forgot to mention something - I'm having Firepit Fridays every/most Friday at my house until the weather gets too cold and it's open invite for anyone to drop in any week, so if you fancy popping round for a few drinks around a fire in my garden any week everyone's more than welcome.

And here's a picture of my Tattershall Lakes adventures:
